Because only a small number of clerks can take advantage of the opportunity to network at national conferences, there was a tremendous need for an easier way for more clerks to connect.
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) June 25, 2015
iCompass Technologies (http://www.icompasstech.com), a leading provider of paperless agenda, records and citizen engagement software to small and medium-sized local governments, and dedicated supporter of their associations, announces the national launch of The ClerkOn Community, the new online gathering place for clerks.
ClerkOn is helping clerks better their careers and their community by making it easier to connect with one another on a daily basis no matter their location. Over 20,000 clerk professionals in the United States and Canada have been invited to join the fun after several smaller scale regional launches, making it the largest online gathering place of its kind for clerks. Early feedback has been extremely positive.
“You get a chance not only to learn but to provide your input and help someone else down the road,” explains ClerkOn member and Evanston, Illinois City Clerk Rodney Green.
“ClerkOn is a fun way to network! It's easy to access, to share ideas and to learn from one another," adds Sumner, Washington City Clerk Terri Berry.
Township of Gillies, Ontario Clerk Shara Lavallee agrees. “It's nice to meet other Clerks that understand what you're going through!"
Encouraging a Nationwide Conversation
ClerkOn ushers in a new era of engagement and connectedness for clerks. Despite being one of the most important and longstanding local government professions, clerks have never had a fun and active, nationwide community to call their own.
Inside ClerkOn, forums and challenges encourage clerks to share knowledge, procedures and strategies while earning points they can use to redeem for fun and professional rewards. It’s an inviting place just for clerks, to serve their ongoing desire for professional development in an engaging atmosphere.
“iCompass has had the pleasure of connecting with clerks from across North America for over 16 years,” says Paul Hetherington, Chief Revenue Officer at iCompass. “Because only a small number of clerks can take advantage of the opportunity to network at national conferences, there was a tremendous need for an easier way for more clerks to connect.”
ClerkOn takes advantage of the latest technology from Influitive to facilitate clerks meeting and helping out one-another while working their way up a fun leaderboard. The new ClerkOn Community is easy-to-use, fun and free to join. Any clerk can register to be granted full access instantly by visiting: http://info.icompasstech.com/clerkon-intro.html
Making Professional Development Easier to Obtain
With access to a national network of clerks, sharing information is now just a few clicks away. As budgets for ongoing local government professional development continue to tighten, the need for an online gathering place like ClerkOn is at an all-time high.
“Clerks have always had such a strong sense of community. But with such a fast-paced job, and limited budget for educational opportunities it’s becoming increasingly difficult for clerks to take part in continued learning initiatives.” explains Paul Blanchet, Vice President of Customer Success & Operations at iCompass. “With ClerkOn, the community has an easy, free and fun way to connect with peers on a national scale.”
